Buffalo's DaVinci High School Meets the FAFSA Challenge

Students and Administrators Recognized by The Education Trust - New York State

The New York FAFSA Completion Project is a statewide campaign to encourage public high schools to increase the proportion of eligible low-income students who complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to qualify for federal and state college financial aid programs.

BCSA recognizes DaVinci High School, led by Principal Greg Lodinsky and his Assistant Principals, Lizzie Crispin and Dr. Martin Lyonga. They garnered national attention for their success in this year’s FAFSA Completion Challenge. The NBC Universal network was in Buffalo and spoke to Principal Lodinsky and several students about the supreme challenge of completing FAFSA documents. This daunting task keeps students all over the nation from applying to college. The students at DaVinci answered the call of their administrators and met the FAFSA Completion Challenge. BCSA joins with New York State to recognize the administrators and the students who crossed the finish line.
